This paper, presented at the 2001 Physics Education Research Conference, shares the results of a density assessment administered to 787 middle school, high school, and college students; which indicate that students harbor numerous alternate conceptions, particularly a tendency to associate mass, volume, and density with size. The authors state that these responses can be interpreted as illustrating an inability to distinguish between these related concepts.
